This is my first time owning a puffer and I am not quiet sure what their beaks are supposed to look like. I do know with almost all puffers you are supposed to feed them shellfish so their teeth dont overgrow but I was wondering if my puffer has a mouth fungus or is that just the way his mouth looks as a juvenile. This one is a Figure 8 juvenile puffer i believe.

Yep looks healthy to me too you will need a supply of snails and shellfish to keep it in check. When they are over grown they look somewhere between buggs bunny and Dracula!

3rd picture looks normal to me. Whats this name?
If his lips turn white and it look like he's wearing white lipstick post another pic. Or if his mouth gets fuzzy.
Cutie-patutie that one.
Snails and. Bloodworms.
